Prayer Request Updates

Dear Friends,

Sean Tierney, a teacher in Elder's Religion Department, is in need of your
prayers. Sean received word from his physicians at the Cleveland Clinic
that he needs to be placed on the national heart transplant list. For the
past couple of months Sean has been in and out of hospitals in Cincinnati,
with the doctors trying to determine the cause of his deteriorating heart
function. Around the first of the new year he was transported to the
Cleveland Clinic by ambulance and has been undergoing tests since his

Sean is 31 years old, married to Robyn (Wittich) just over a year, and they
are expecting their first child in April. Cleveland doctors believe the
cause may be a genetic disease/disorder that has recently activated and
attacked his heart. Sean's doctors are hopeful--his blood type is common,
and his body type is good for the standards required for the transplant
list. Sean's application for admittance to the transplant list goes to that
board either today or Wednesday. Once on the list, Sean said, there are no
guarantees. He might catch a break, and the transplant may be available

When asked what we could do for him and Robyn, his reply was prayers. And
this is my request--for your prayers, and to pass this request along to
others for theirs.

In addition, there already is an announced prayer service scheduled for this
Thursday evening (January 11) at St. Teresa of Avila Church (Price Hill).
7:30 pm - Praying of the Rosary
8:00 pm - Prayer Service of Healing
All are welcome to come and pray with us for Sean and Robyn and their families.

Thank You,

I spent 24 hours with Sean as a roommate at The Cleveland Clinic Jan 11-12. Sean is in the best facility that he can be. CC has helped greatly improve my quality of life. I notice a lot of love pouring in from Sean’s family and friends. In the short time I was with him I could quickly tell he is a wonderful person and deserves Gods love and blessing. Sean will be in our thoughts and prayers as well. Tom Brew, Mineral Point, PA.
